Job Description: The Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy believes that everyone has the right, even the responsibility to help shape U.S. foreign policy “one handshake at a time,” and since 1967, we at UCCD have fostered citizen diplomacy by creating meaningful person-to-person interactions with individuals from other countries and cultures.

UCCD works with the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program and other exchange programs to welcome hundreds of emerging leaders from around the world to Utah to meet with like-minded professionals, businesses, government agencies, and organizations to exchange best practices and create networks while experiencing Utah’s unique culture. Additionally, UCCD invites the local community to attend the World Affairs Lecture Series that features experts who come from a wide range of disciplines to speak about relevant foreign diplomacy topics resulting in a globally savvy community. UCCD offers a dynamic working environment with ample opportunities to learn about global issues and cultures while creating professional networks with international, national, and local individuals.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, outgoing individual with excellent communication skills in English, the ability to work independently, and a passion for contributing to global understanding. Candidates must be detail oriented – our work requires scrupulous attention to detail. This is an unpaid internship, but college credit and a stipend will be provided upon successful completion of the internship. The successful candidate will have their own transportation and business-related mileage will be reimbursed.
